Saints name Milne to play Crows

St Kilda have named small forward Stephen Milne to play Adelaide in Sunday's vital AFL game, despite him suffering a fractured cheekbone four days ago.

Milne was injured in a collision with Fremantle's Antoni Grover in Sunday's win over the Dockers and travelled home from Perth by car and train.

He arrived at the club only on Wednesday.

Facing the fifth-placed Crows, the eighth-placed Saints named Milne to help keep alive their finals aspirations. Both clubs named expanded squads.

Collingwood made one change for Saturday night's game against Sydney, with Sharrod Wellingham in for Dale Thomas, who injured his calf in last week's win over Port Adelaide.

The Swans recalled Leo Barry, Keiran Jack and Patrick Veszpremi and dropped Luke Ablett, Nic Fosdike and Nick Malceski.

In the game of the round, ladder leaders Geelong and fourth-placed North Melbourne bolstered their squads for Sunday's clash at Skilled Stadium.

The Cats have premiership trio Darren Milburn, Matthew Scarlett and Paul Chapman all fit again and must decide who to drop from a side that has won its past 11 games.

The Kangaroos included in their squad No.1 ruckman Hamish McIntosh, who has not played since round 12 because of a knee injury.
